I really enjoyed my time at the Summer Schools. The energy and collaboration was intense, and produced great ideas.

Thank you for organising such a fantastic event, it was so well organised your team made it look effortless which in itself is an achievement. I look forward to next year’s event.

I have received such positive feedback from the Irish contingent.
